“Great for kids”
Reviewed 22 January 2012

This is a fantastic museum for children and young adults. Not the most convenient for public transportation, but if you have a car and are looking for a place to take some young folks, this is a lot of fun.

“Engaging, Fun”
Reviewed 20 January 2012

I celebrated my daughter's 8th Bday at the NY Hall of Science with a party- tour- and time for the kids to play and explore. The kids and the adults enjoyed themselves. Highly recommend visiting this spot. I need to go back myself.

Reviewed 11 January 2012

Famous when NYC had a Worlds Fair, but that was 50 years ago. It offers some interesting facts.
